The laboratory is funded by the NIH to study the role of inflammation and MUC1 in pancreatic cancer progression and metastasis. Novel strategies to target these molecules within the tumor microenvironment are also being explored. This includes understanding the immune-tolerant and chemo resistant tumor microenvironment. The laboratory is also looking at the role of autoimmune inflammatory arthritis in the recruitment and homing of tumor cells to the bone to form bone metastasis during breast cancer development.
